    Looks like the original screen didn't fit properly in the first place.
    The rubber was always two pieces, the top and sides are standard S profile the bottom is one I've not seen before, but the S profile wont fit the glass shell at the bottom, so it is what it is.

    I'll try some small adjustments but I don't want to scratch the new paint.

    Onward!!!...

    The first results of the blasting and powder coating are in


    Front and rear springs, wheelie bar spreader and springs. The springs are the original greasy blue ones the car came with.
    They were blasted with an alumimium silicate medium to remove the existing coating. Each spring took about 45 minutes to strip.
    Once the coating was applied they were baked for 20mins at 180 degrees in my home made oven and allowed to cool down. For a first go I'm happy.

    Springs in place.


    I will be stripping and satin black powder coating the front A-arms, hubs, and steering rack parts etc over the winter.



    Just ordered some satin black powder for various brackets and spacers, watch this space.

    Looking good from here will have to see them in the flesh at the Nationals.

    One point though, and nothing to do with your coating, are the front springs close to getting coil bound? the rears look fine and dandy the fronts in that photo look a bit close.
